There are so many ways in which this restaurant is outstanding. We all love that feeling when you know you've discovered somewhere really special and, on our holiday to South Africa, this was it. You need to book and it's easy to see why. The restaurant was full and every single dish was beautiful to look and and absolutely delicious.... More

A truly amazing restaurant with wonderful service and a friendly atmosphere. The food is exquisite yet inexpensive and the location boasts a wonderful view. My visit was highly enjoyable and the owners are so kind and talented, I could not recommend it enough.

Had a most enjoyable lunch here the other day. Fabulous setting outside on the stoep. Brydon's cooking is great and the six of us tried almost everything on the menu. I had the kidneys followed by the Kerala fish curry, both full of flavour and delicious. The whole thing is held together by Innes, Brydon's wife, who is amazing as... More

Another amazing lunch with friends. The consistency of this restaurant is without doubt the secret of its success, unpretentious food beautifully executed. The hilarious proprietor Innes waits at table while her husband Brydon cooks almost single handed in the kitchen, the resulting experience is one you should not miss. Only open for lunch bookings are a must.

If you thinking of gracing this place I strongly suggest don't unless you enjoy a rude welcome from the proprietor - just passing and was thinking of reserving at a later date but its quite obvious that will never happen. As a Senior reviewer can honestly not comment on the food but if the ambiance is like the unbelievably unfriendly... More

It really is quite simple! When the sign, that you clearly read according to you, says that we are 'fully booked, please phone for any future booking', note the word 'phone',we like to think that is an indication of the fact that at that specific time we are busy, concentrating on our guests, our restaurant full of guests who have...

The restaurant is set in a wonderful location with great views from the garden. It is warm and welcoming and it oozes atmosphere and vibe. Innes is a brilliant front of house with a fantastic personality and Brydon is just as lovely besides being a brilliant chef. The food was just perfect and to a very high standard. I can... More

We had lunch at havercroft. Warm, friendly atmosphere. Innes and Brydon were welcoming and kind. We loved our lunch. The duck liver pate was superb, frikadels wrapped in cabbage was amazing. Loved the vanilla fudge ice cream. Will be back on our next visit.

This was our third visit and from the moment you walk into the restaurant, one feels at home and Innes and her waiters are just fantastic. To describe the food would not justify what our taste buds experienced...so in one word: Unbelievable!!!! thank you for a memorable day and we are already planning the next visit!!!
